BEHEMOTH Drummer's AZARATH To Release New EP, Full-Length Album

AZARATH, the Polish extreme metal band featuring BEHEMOTH drummer Zbigniew Robert "Inferno" Prominski, will release its as-yet-untitled fifth album on June 6 via Witching Hour Productions. The CD was recorded in January and February at Hertz Studio (VADER, BEHEMOTH, LOST SOUL) with the Wieslawscy Bros. handling the production, mixing and mastering. The music was composed and arranged by Inferno and Bart, while Necrosodom wrote all the lyrics. 10 new devilish hymns were recorded for the album, including "Behold The Satan's Sword", "Under The Will of The Lord", "Deathstorms Raid The Earth" and "Lucifer's Rising".

Commented Inferno: "The character and atmosphere of music was changed considerably. The music is dark, ominous and spatial — in many parts refers to black metal and classics of the genre. Aggression and sonic massacre is not lacking at all – as this is our main frontline."

AZARATH recently underwent some personnel changes — Necrosodom (guitar and vocals) replaced Bruno, while the bass duties are now being handled by P.

A new AZARATH EP, "Holy Possession", will arrive on April 10 as a CD and seven-inch EP. It will feature the title track and a cover of "Rebel Souls" by DAMNATION. The CD edition will be limited to 666 copies ("die hard") and the seven-inch EP will be limited to 333 copies — on white vinyl with a metal envelope containing also a poster and a badge.

The graphic design for the for full album and LP was handled by Boris Kaluzhny (a.k.a. Hatefrost), a Ukrainian artist residing in New York.

An audio sample of the upcoming album is available at this location.
